     In 1988, Madonna met a woman who would cause the two to forever be linked in controversy.  She started hanging out with outspoken Sandra after seeing her amazing one-woman show, Without You I'm Nothing.  Soon, Sandra became a constant presence in Madonna's life not only as her marriage to Sean Penn was declining, but throughout the rest of the 80's and into the next decade.

     Were they sleeping together?  Just friends? The media went crazy over the zany duo of Madonna and Sandra.  M & S joined forces with Jennifer Grey and Debi Mazar, and became a force to be reckoned with in the club scene.  In a delicious twist, they formed their own take on Sinatra's Rat Pack.  Naming themselves the Snatch Batch, the trio raised some holy hell, frequenting many gay and lesbian clubs, dancing the night away.

     Madonna even made a surprise appearance on NBC's Late Night With David Letterman with galpal Sandra, even further perpetuating the lesbian rumors.  They seemed to genuinely delight in the havoc they caused.

Here's Madonna causing a commotion with Sandra Bernhard.
